  • This ode to the ladies is the fourth single by American rapper Flo Rida, from his sophomore album, R.O.O.T.S..
  • This smooth ballad features American R&B singer-songwriter Ne-Yo.
  • The song was produced by the Norwegian production team StarGate, who are Mikkel S. Eriksen and Erik Hermansen. They have produced and co-written many other hits including Ne-Yo's breakthrough chart-topper So Sick."
  • The song recreates elements from Coldplay's "Viva La Vida."
  • Some fans have queried if this song was inspired by the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman, which includes the line: "I'm going to throw something out and if you don't like it, you just send it right back... I want to be on you... wait, wait...I want to be on you..."
